Dr Simon Hu is a Research Fellow at the Transport and Environmental Laboratory (TEL), within the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) at Imperial College London. He has obtained BSc (2005) in Civil Engineering, holds a MSc (2007) and PhD (2011) degrees in Transport System Engineering from Imperial College London.
His research interests lie in smart urban transport systems, traffic micro-simulation modelling, vehicle emission monitoring as well as airport air quality management. His work to date has spanned across the areas of vehicle navigation, network reliability, traffic prediction and management, bike sharing, urban freight logistics emissions, aviation and railway engineering. In the past, he has obtained funding and undertook research projects through Department for Transport, UK Natural Environmental Research Council, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, European Commission, INNOVATE UK and industry.
